Mosquito Flag Squashed, Typo Blamed


What appeared to have been a joke by one of the members of the State Flag Commission turns out to have been a mistake. A flag design featuring a giant mosquito was listed among one commissioner's 25 favorites as the original group of almost 3000 designs was narrowed to 147. But the Department of Archives and History says the flag number was included accidentally, the result of a typo. And the unnamed commissioner has asked that the mosquito flag be removed from the gallery of designs that are posted on MDAH's website.
